There are about 1,100 people in Presto, PA, with the median age being around 50. More than half of those people are married, and over 20% of them have kids. 8% of the population is divorced and 6% are legally separated. That’s why it’s essential to have easy access to both family law and estate planning services in the area – and the Gubinsky Law Firm is here to help you with both.
Managing partner Mark Gubinsky has thirty years of experience as a divorce attorney, handling everything from custody battles to alimony and spousal support to equitable distribution of assets. Selected as one of the Best Lawyers in America in both 2013 and 2014, he’s skilled in all aspects of family law litigation.
However, as a trained mediator with deep experience in collaborative law, he prefers to settle cases out of court whenever possible, as messy legal battles can be detrimental to everyone – particularly when there are kids involved. Mark understands that divorce and custody battles come with complicated issues and that each case is unique, which is why he evaluates each client carefully to determine the course of action that’s best for them and for everyone else involved.
Kathleen Gubinsky also has thirty years of experience as an attorney, licensed in Pennsylvania since 1994, with her primary expertise being estate planning. It’s never too soon to start planning for what to do with your assets after you’re gone, or if you’re incapacitated and unable to make your own decisions. Experts recommend that you start estate planning before you turn 40, and ideally as soon as you reach legal age.
Kathleen can guide you through that process, helping you understand what your options are and decide what’s right for your situation. She can help you with drafting a will or setting up a living trust, as well as preparing the documents for healthcare or financial power of attorney. Planning for the end of life is often a difficult and daunting task, but Kathleen can take you through it step by step and help you make the right decisions, for you and for your loved ones.
